Retirees retie knot 50 years later
They got hitched in their teens, divorced 20 years later and the American couple will tie the knot again after half-century apart, it emerged this week.
For Lena Henderson and Roland Davis, the second time around is finally here, even if they’re both 85. The Buffalo-area couple plan to remarry tomorrow, with four generations of their family present. The couple met as teenagers in Tennessee, and after marrying had four children together. They divorced in 1964 but always kept in touch.
Henderson moved to West Seneca 30 years ago. Davis, a military retiree, lived alone in Colorado after his previous wife died several months ago. During a recent telephone conversation with Henderson, he proposed to her, and she said yes. – Sapa-AP
